The Aaron Cohn Citizenship Award was established by Dr. David and Jane Cohn Kulbersh of Columbia, South Carolina, daughter and son-in-law of Judge Aaron Cohn, to recognize the qualities that Judge Cohn most admired.
Born and raised in Columbus, Georgia, Judge Aaron Cohn presided over the Juvenile Courts of the Chattahoochee Judicial District for almost 50 years. He spent his life helping to guide the youth of Columbus toward respectful and productive lives and believed in the importance of encouraging young people to be engaged in and loyal to their school and community.
The Aaron Cohn Citizenship Award is awarded annually to honor an Aaron Cohn Middle School eighth grade student for their civic awareness, scholastic achievements, and community service.
This award seeks to inspire students to become active citizens while giving back to their communities because civic responsibility developed at an early age usually continues throughout a lifetime.
